I have been writing about Claunch, NM and Coal Fire, AL, but I have not mentioned my wife’s place of birth, Rogers, NM. A WHOLE LOT of people are FROM Rogers, and just like Claunch and Coal Fire, ain’t a whole lot of folks there now. Before the Clubhouse completely fell in, my wife took me by to visit. This was where the happening were in Rogers. Dancing was big and all the folks joined in. Once, my wife and I were in Amarillo, TX, passing through, but spending the night. The restaurant  had a dance floor and we decided to dance one. My wife asked me, “Did I ever show you how my aunts would dance at Rogers?” No, was my reply. She showed me. She left me standing there watching as she put  one hand on the hip, the other hand up in the air with the index finger pointed upward, and kind of swivling the hips as she pranced round and round. Me and several other dancers were surprised but enjoyed the show. Ah, the joys of youth…..But anyway folks, thats another real town that at one time was a jumping place. Several of my paintings are from pictures made in that area. Still are some nice folks living in that area as well.  More on Rogers, NM later…..
